Pre-Game: Mets at Padres Aug. 8, 2009

PadresNewLogoNew York Mets (51-58 Road: 29-27) at San Diego Padres (46-65 Home: 29-29) 10:05pm

Bobby Parnell (2-3 3.74) vs. Mat Latos (3-1 2.66)


What to watch: The Mets try to pick themselves up from the floor after last night’s devastating loss. They need to win both remaining games in San Diego just to split the series. Parnell makes his first Major League start after being rushed into the rotation after Mike Pelfrey left the team for the birth of his first child. Latos has made four starts for the Padres and hasn’t allowed more than 2 runs in any of them. Don’t expect this game to be an easy one.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.

    1. The Nats have played pretty well since Riggleman took over. The Rockies went crazy when Jim Tracy took over there too. It would be pretty sad if the Nats overtook the Mets in the standings before the end of the season.
